CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Last Saturday we had the 2nd weekend of our very popular Rising Stars programme. We had a huge turn out again and the kids had a great time. The Rising Stars is a 6 week programme of fun indoor activities based on hurling and football to develop your child’s fundamental movement skills such as agility, balance, co-ordination, running, jumping, catching, and throwing. The programme will take place on Saturday mornings at Croom Sports Complex for another 4 weeks starting at 10am and will last an hour. The programme is for boys and girls aged 3-6 and parental involvement during each class is encouraged. Anyone who missed the first couple of days is more than welcome this Saturday. Cost €25 for the 6 weeks. Please come along and try out this fun new sporting activity. For further information, please call 0858610223.
